Mangoes All The Way

Mangoes All The Way

Every summer, on a trip home and back, we are confronted with this sight - mangoes being sold in the mango belt on the route. At times, we also come across palm fruit and toddy - these establishments are smaller. In fact, there is no establishment, just a bunch of fruit and maybe a pot and a few mugs of toddy.

Behind these mango stalls are the orchards and if you look closely, you can see the mangoes on the trees. These are on a portion of NH5 and are a popular stop for travellers. Various varieties are sold here. I don't know if all of them are grown in the region, though.

Now here's some colour.

And some more

Here's a post on mangoes and summer in India, something that I wrote five years ago!

This post goes off to Black & White Wednesday, created by Susan. I am hosting it this week.
